What an incredibly pretty season finale of American Gods. Directed by Floria Sigismondi, who I first heard of in the 90s when she made Marilyn Manson music videos, this Eastery Easter episode was about as far from Antichrist Superstar as you could get.
There was another nice new episode of American Gods on Sunday, “Lemon Scented You”, which introduced some important characters and had one of the nicest side-story vignettes yet.
It’s a struggle to think about any other TV show after Twin Peaks but I guess the new episode of American Gods on Sunday was pretty good too. It’s not its fault Twin Peaks casts such an enormous shadow over it. “Git Gone” (named for the Fiona Apple song?) felt much more like Bryan Fuller than Neil Gaiman, in fact it…

Last night’s new American Gods was an improvement from last week’s. It featured two vignettes unrelated to the main plot, both of which were better than the vignette from last week, and a less suspenseful but more satisfying development in the main plot.
Добро пожаловать! This is where we talk about American Gods with spoilers from the book. Is good?
Last night’s première of the American Gods television series was one of the best première episodes of any series I’ve seen in years. The cast, the music, the editing, everything’s well above average even in this day and age of great television.

Radio 4 broadcast a new 2 part adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust staring Matthew Beard & Sophie Rundle over the weekend & if you missed it both parts are available online for the next few weeks. It’s been awhile since I read the original Vertigo miniseries & I’ve only listened to part 1, but so far it’s not bad.
BBC Radio 4 will be returning to the world of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere on this coming Friday afternoon. The Drama presentation for November 4 is a Dirk Maggs production of How The Marquis Got His Coat Back.
BBC Radio 4 want to know how Neil Gaiman’s Stardust should look on the radio. With Dirk Maggs’ two-part dramatisation of Gaiman’s fairy tale hitting the airwaves in December, Auntie Beeb has challenged budding artists and fans to follow in the footsteps of Charles Vess and Chris Riddell and create and submit an…
The first two episodes of a new miniseries based on the short stories Foreign Parts, Feeders & Eaters, Closing Time & Looking for the Girl, are on UK satellite channel Sky Arts tonight at 9pm, followed next week by the last two episodes. Unfortunately it’s on Sky Arts though so I don’t know how many people here who…
Not every comic is going to be well known, not even ones by famous comic book creators. Sometimes it’s from before they got famous or sometimes it’s after, they are just simply overshadowed by other things they have created. Here are some books from famous comic book creators that may have slipped under your radar.
According to Gaiman’s Twitter feed (and via The Guardian) he is currently in talks with a studio to pen a script for an adaptation of Mervyn Peake’s landmark fantasy series Gormenghast.
Bill Paterson is reading Neil Gaiman’s short story - ‘The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains’ on Radio 4’s Book at Bedtime this week & Part 1 is now available on the iPlayer. I haven’t read the original story (although it seems to be legally available free online & quite short), but I think it’s probably abridged…
It’s Halloween in space. Written by Neil Gaiman. Penn & Teller are space-comedians. If you’ve never watched Babylon 5, are you not sold somehow?
Writers are not typically gauged by anything other than their writing. Which is fair and right and proper. The work is what they should be judged by, right?
Terry Pratchett is dead and the world is a poorer place for it. But before he left the world, he graced it with many, many, many novels, most of them set in the world (and mirror of worlds) of Discworld. And while Discworld is wonderful (it provokes wonder), that's not the only work he has written. Here are five you…
